Orlando Pirates have dismissed talks that goalkeeper Fatau Dauda could be leaving the club in the January transfer window.
Dauda, who arrived in South Africa in June, is yet to make his debut for the Sea Robbers.
Recent reports suggested the Ghana number one may be loaned out next month to protect his place in the Black Stars squad, with the West Africans set to compete at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
However, Bucs administrator Floyd Mbele tells KickOff.com that Dauda is staying put. "Dauda has a contract with us and I don't know why people are making this an issue," Mbele says.
"This is like asking you to leave Kick Off and join Soccer Laduma when you have a contract with your current employers.
"We have spoken to Dauda and the coach in Ghana has spoken to our coach. He understands the situation."
Dauda is being kept out of the Pirates team by Senzo Meyiwa.
